Suffolk: Heavy rain hits part of the county

sa-011-flooding-wherstead-4

Heavy overnight rain caused problems in part of Suffolk – but most had drained away before people were up and about on Sunday.

There were no reports of properties being flooded, but police and highways officials were monitoring the A14 in the Trimley area after puddles as deep as eight inches were reported during the early hours.

However the rain eased in the early hours and the surface water drained away before there was much traffic using the road.
